Judges have tossed dozens of cases in past 5 years over credibility concerns with police testimony

As Det. Const. Alec Tompras of York Regional Police pressed a robbery suspect for information on Aug. 2, 2012, a camera captured the interview from above.

"I know for a fact that you were there that day," Tompras told Gil Kim, who was being interrogated about an armed robbery of a Rogers store in Markham, Ont., north of Toronto.

The footage of the interrogation became crucial as Kim's lawyer sought to have the charges thrown out.

In her 2017 decision, Superior Court Justice Cory Gilmore questioned why Kim was seated facing away from the camera during the interrogation. Recordings show Kim's co-accused were interviewed facing the camera.
